I once asked the guy at a lumber yard for treated 4x4s that would not warp. He laughed at me the idea. Asshole. How can I build anything that will last decades if the wood warps?

You say that like its a bad thing!

I was referring to her character.

Reminds me of a question my brother asked a very pretty girl when we were kids. He asked if she would have se. With him if he had a million bucks for the services? She smiled and said, "Yes." He then asked her if she would for fifty cents. She got a bit perturbed, said, "No," and asked who he thought he was talking to. He replied, "I know who I'm talking to. We're just negotiating the price." Boy was she mad.

Rebecca and Bernie have been married for fifty years and are being interviewed by the local paper. "So Rebecca", asks the reporter, "I know that this is your golden wedding anniversary, but how old, exactly, are you?" "I am 78 years old", replies Rebecca, "and God willing I should live to be a hundred".
"Well I hope your wish comes true, "says the reporter. The reporter than turns to Bernie and asks, "and how old are you, Bernie". "I am also 78 years old", replies Bernie, and please God let me live to be a hundred and one."
"But why, "asks the reporter, "do you want to live one year longer than your wife?"
"Well, to tell you the truth,"replies Bernie, "I would like to have at least one year of peace and quiet."

Laying in the back seat floor over the transmission hump to stay warm.

I remember finding the warm spot in the bed of a pickup on a cool evening. Usually over the drive shaft area.

The barn was 600' down the road from the house. Getting into the warmth of the animobile barn on a black winter morning after that walk was life-saving.

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to the local grocery store. Unfortunately, like most men; I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter, from the local store manager:
Dear Mrs. Harris:
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion, in our store.
We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to, ban both of you from the store.
Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:
1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.
2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.
3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.
4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, 'Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away'. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money. We don't have a Code 3.
5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.
6. August 14: Moved a, 'CAUTION - WET FLOOR' sign to a carpeted area.
7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.
8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were called.
9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.
10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while, loudly humming the, 'Mission Impossible' theme.
12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his, 'Madonna Look' using different sizes of funnels.
13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'
14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed;
'OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'
15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where is the fitting room?
And last, but not least:
16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile; then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here.' One of the clerks passed out.

So my new F250 doesn’t have a hump…they make them high enough now it’s not necessary. Really nice flat area for the dog to hangout on long rides with the rear seat up.

Herself has already banned me from shopping with her... ever since I tore my shirt and came running out of a dressing room to accost the first person I saw.

I screamed in his face: "What is today's date!?"

He told me, and I ran away yelling, "IT WORKS!! IT WORKS!!

For what those things cost I'm surprised you can still afford to keep the dog! :rotf:
